An editor with the New York Times instructed staffers not to examine the origins of COVID-19, which was confirmed by two staff members to the Spectator on Monday.
There was also another New York Times journalist who had proposed to probe the origin of the virus in 2020. The journalist was told it was considered a “conspiracy theory” and “untouchable everywhere.” It was also supported by former President Donald Trump and that made it a “no-go” (Sputnik News). A reporter also claimed the New York Times had claimed investigating the origins would be “ridiculous.”
Additionally, the New York Times dismissed questions to the World Health Organization (WHO) because it would be “racist” to do so. At the same time the New York Times was reportedly publishing “advertorials” which promoted the Chinese government’s line and the paper was also receiving millions of dollars from the Chinese government-controlled outlets.
During this time Former President Donald Trump had insisted on referring to COVID-19 as the “China virus” and demanded Beijing pay the world $10 trillion in reparations for the over 3.8 million deaths in addition to the economic damage he believed Beijing had come to the world.
